state when there is early voting. >> let's look at where we are on the economy and the gdp nun numbers and the unemployment numbers. this must not have been the kind of growth that barack obama was talking about, was promising when he stood in front of those crowds in chicago on election night four years ago after having been declared the next president of the united states. such a big moment for the obama family. he must have stood there hoping four years from that night things would look a lot better economically speaking than they do today. >> let's look at the numbers. the gdp numbers that came out this week were above what they were projected to be. we saw a few weeks ago that unemployment was below 8% for the first time since the president took over in the midst of the worst economic crisis since the great depression. we all agree we need to do more. we agree that things can get better. but this president has done incredible things considering the republicans in congress have said from day one they will say no to anything he wants to do. not just for the economy, but to m

is a critical time. the president was a president who took office with the economy as the number one challenge and he has high are unemployment today than when he took office. think of that. the president of the united states presides over a nation under his leadership where unemployment is higher than the day he took office. he said he would save social security and medicare because they were headed to insolvency. instead, he made no effort to save either and he took $716 billion from medicare to pay for obamacare. and he said he was going do lower the cost of your health insurance by $2,500 a family by now. instead it has gone up by $3,000 a family. gasoline prices are also up by $2,000 a family. of course, he said he would work across the aisle on the most important issues america faces. the last time the president met with either the republican leader of the house or the republican leader of the senate to talk about jobs or the economy offer the deficit was in july. this is a budget who -- president who has promise add lot of things whose record is different. rather than building

the economy and jobs will be stagnant but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. and i won't spend my time trying to pass partisan legislation unrelated to jobs. from day one i am going to go to work to help americans get back to work. >> once again to give you an idea of how close it is the real clear politics has mr. obama up by six tenths of a point. it is impossible for anybody to really know what's going to happen. later today we go to cleveland, ohio the key battle ground state where mosth polls are tied but a slight advantage perhaps for mr. obama there and mitt romney will go to morrisville, pennsylvania. pennsylvania is a state he has not visitd in months. some fairly safely in the column. it is a sign of momentum their ability to expand the battlefield in places they weren't expected to be that competitive and go to the finish line with big momentum. the obama campaign argues this is a romney hail mary. they are trying to hedge bets against possible losses and other key battle ground states. lots of spinning on both sides. each campaign trying to create

mean? >> this is a great number for the economy. it basically mirrors what we're seeing in the growth of the gdp. we're seeing the trend moving in the right direction. the numbers have been improving for 29 consecutive months in terms of jobs growth. however, at the same anemic pace we're seeing with gdp. gdp of 2% or less. we're seeing job growth averaging somewhere around $150,000. i would point out that the positive revisions to the two previous months actually bowie the numbers overall. a good number for the economy. jenna: 150,000 jobs added what we're seeing every month. some people say listen that is barely enough to keep up with population growth. why isn't it faster, bob? why aren't we seeing more growth, more jobs? >> because corporations are holding money on their books. though don't know what the regulatory overhang is going to be. they don't know the outcome of the election and they don't know associated costs for things like health care, as well as other benefits that are out there. so rather than make the investment in employees, they're waiting and keeping money
